Campaign Stars: Lara Stone For cK Calvin Klein Spring 2011

Here’s our first look at Dutch supermodel Lara Stone in the Spring 2011 campaign for cK Calvin Klein (she’ll apparently be joined by Liu Wen in the next set of images). She was shot by power duo Mert & Marcus and styled by Karl Templer in the spare, fresh ads and almost succeeds in reminding us that Spring (and not Fall!) is just around the corner.

The fish and chip shop girl from Manchester made her runway debut in 2006 and soared to stardom, going on to be one of the biggest mannequins in the world and face of Armani, Hugo Boss, Mulberry, Vivienne Westwood and Anna Sui. After a year or two of seeing her on every billboard, catwalk and campaign, Agyness suffered from overexposure, but it’s not her fault everybody wanted a piece of her… she’s a darling of Steven Meisel, has been muse to Burberry’s Christopher Baily and Henry Holland, and is known across the land for her eclectic style, tough-pretty features and ever-changing pixie cut.

Models of the Decade: Gemma Ward

One of the most sensational models that ever was: Gemma Ward floated onto the catwalks in 2003 (as a Prada exclusive, no less) and changed the game.
